Geocache Description:

A geocache/letterbox hybrid along the Sligo Creek Trail in Silver Spring, MD. If you leave a geocoin within the container I will take it and place it in a letterbox somewhere in the Carolinas. PLEASE READ FULL DESCRIPTION IF LEAVING A COIN

This is my first geocache/letterbox hybrid. It is along the Sligo Creek Trail, which is a nice, paved walking/jogging/bike trail in Silver Spring, Maryland, just north of Washington, DC.


Anybody can have fun finding this geocache, but if you leave a geocoin within the container I promise to move it to a geocache somewhere in the Carolinas.
  • Coins or other small trackables only. Items must be under 1.5" diameter to fit in the container. Please do not leave anything else in the cache.
  • Please log your dropoff or send me a message to let me know I need to pick up the trackable.
  • This is an "in-only" cache. If you find a coin in the cache before I get a chance to pick it up, please leave it because the person who dropped it off was promised it would be taken to NC or SC.

Since this cache is also a letterbox, this cache is cross-listed at the Atlas Quest letterboxing website. For a change of pace you could try to find this cache without the aid of your GPS by just following the directions.


There's a nice little park with a playground on Sligo Creek Parkway just north of Dennis Avenue that would be an ideal place to park your car.
